My name is Gabriela Landa

I am a Czech-born, German-raised, U.S. resident anthropologist, writer, and photographer.


The author and photographer of the book Transcendent Wisdom of the Maya, I studied photography with Hartmut Schmidt in Germany. I later worked at the International Center

of Photography in New York. Formerly, I was the U.S. correspondent for the art magazine Atelier from New York.

Photography, writing, and organizing events are my ways of walking and making sense of this world. They both took me to many countries and unique cultures while exploring different creative processes, which I invite you to visit here in my photographs: Guatemala, New York, Paris, Prague, Sri Lanka, and Hawaii--I hope to bring my unique perspective of these known and unknown places and people's destinies to your attention, so you too may live the intensity of traditions, history, daily endeavors, loves, and sorrows which people experience in our world.
